The rafts are heavy-duty inflatable dinghies that take six to eight people plus a guide. Rapids are categorized according to a grading system: beginners can happily handle waters of Class II and III rating, which usually involve substantial sections of quiet paddling between rougher and more exciting rapids; Class V runs are very difficult, sometimes dangerous, and can be terrifying for the non-expert.

Ecuador certainly has a wealth of sporting activities to partake in. Many of them require the hire of equipment or of a knowledgeable guide. You may also need someone to show you how to partake of the sport. You can be sure though, that any effort or expense is well worth it and that you will enjoy every moment of the activity you choose as it will be provided in a safe, well organized manner.

The Galapagos Islands themselves have a wealth of interesting activities to pursue, such as hiking, sea kayaking, snorkeling and scuba diving. The Galapagos Islands are part of a well protected nature reserve so it is best to remember to try not disturb any of the natural environment when visiting here. It is also a good idea to bring a camera or two – one for land and one for under water. There is such an abundance of wildlife here that you will not regret it.

The Ecuadorian national football team qualified for the 2002, 2006 and 2014 FIFA World Cups final rounds. Their home stadium in Quito is unusually high and the elevation often affects the performance of visiting teams who are not used to the relatively thinner air.

Ecuador has competed in eleven Summer Olympic Games. They have never competed in the Winter Olympic Games. The nation from South America won its first Olympic medal, when Jefferson Pérez won the gold medal in the Men's 20 km Walk. The Ecuadorian Olympic Committee was created in 1948 and recognized by the IOC in 1959.

Ecuador has a lot of professional football teams with some towns producing more than one team. The most well-known by far is the LDU Quito which is the only team to win the Copa Libertadores, the Copa Sudamericana and the Recopa Sudamericana.
